Update on "the economic edge '09" - Canadian Chamber of Commerce

I attended the Canadian Chamber of Commerce's 'the economic edge' conference yesterday. (

It was an incredibly insightful and inspiring day discussing the competitiveness of Canada, the productivity imperative, and the critical importance of investing in technology, R&D, and commercializing Canadian innovation. In a globally competitive marketplace, we discussed how "Brand Canada" needs to be improved. Hosted by the Honorable Perrin Beatty, we were joined by Prime Minister Harper to close the day.
